Re: Should ventilation system/fans work with ignition on?

It is normal for the Cactus, it has a energy economy mode which won't allow you to be able to use the ventilation system before starting the engine although it should be possible to use the system after a journey for a certain time (even to use the residual heat). When using the "ignition on" functi...

The Ineo First (5 liter can) is retailing for around £42 dose it matter if its 0w-30 or 05w-30? This is the vi...

Re: Whistle noise..

Thanks for your reply, I have replaced those filters a month ago. It's hard to explain in writing but I don't think the noise is generated by any obstruction in the duct system.
In this case the noise would have changed by variations in airflow but it seems stable regardless the fan speed.

Re: Whistle noise..

Yes I meant air condition, it's called climate control in my other car so that's where the mix up is coming from.

The sound only occurs when the air condition is activated whether on auto or manual low or full speed. It doesn't make any difference which air route is selected either.

Re: Volume loss after phone call

Not sure if this is much help but it took me a while to figure out that the sound volume of the satnav can be direct adjusted when it is giving audible instructions. It has happened with me a couple of times that I was about to crank up the music just when the satnav instruction came on. I also noti...

Re: Rev Counter / 2019 Cactus Feel 1.2 110

It's really easy to install a rev counter with a OBD connector, just plug and play basically. Only takes a bit of effort to get the wiring tucked away neatly ..depending where you like to mount your display.
